Medical College Bellary [VIMS]

"Sanction is accorded for the same starting of a Medical College at Bellary during the year 1961-62" so ran the Govt.order No.PLM 563MMC 60, Bangalore dated 15th June 1961, 25th Jaishta S.E.1883 turning into reality the dream of the people of the Bellary district who had striven long and hard for above sanction.

Behind this culmination is a long story...................The Govt of Mysore had sanctioned a Medical College at hubli. This was the inspiration to some of the knowledgeble citizens of Bellary district to ask themselves...........Why not a Medical College at Bellary? Out of this introspection grew the prospect and the need for one. On 4th august 1959, the prominent citizens made out a memorandum and presented to the then Chief Minister, Shri BD Jatti, for establishing a Medical College at Bellary. In the memorandum, it was envisaged to have the College and Hospital buildings at the existing Head Quarters Hospital and adjacent campus and to begin the Pre-Professional Course (PPC) and Pre-Clinical Courses at the Allipuram Jail Blocks. They also pleaded that the college should start functioning from July 1960.

When the response from the govt was rather lukewarm, the seasoned co-operators of the district went to the extent of establishing the Bellary District Co-operative Academy of Technical and Scientific Education Limited, Bellary; with the aim of starting a co-operative Medical College as an alternative, "a revolutionary proposal" as acclaimed by the Press. Wave after wave of delegations from all cross sections of the citizens submitted memoranda to the Chief Minister Shri BD Jatti, reiterating the demand.

A sponsoring committee for Medical College was formed on 18-6-1960 and presented memoranda to the chief minister on 26-6-1960 and again on 27-4-1961 pleading for the inclusion of the project in the Third Five Year Plan.The philanthropic public had come forward with a novel idea of donating a substantial amount towards the starting of medical college by the proceeds from sale of high grade iron ore to state trading corporation; the sale proceeds being credited to the medical college sponsoring committee account as donation.
